Simple Stories: Love Your Face Off

I can't help but to take pictures of my kids making their, fun, quirky and adorable faces. After is important that we document the funny things they do.  Meet Braden, my oldest son.  He has a knack for making some funny yet adorable faces.

My kids are getting older and older, but one thing hasn't changed and that is how much I love to mug on them.  They still get kisses and hugs from me...they are never too old.

I love the fact that Simple Stories products give me so many options and ideas to create a page that represents my kids personalities.

Imaginisce Magni -Top Jewelry!

I was so excited to play with the I-Top and Imaginisce's new Magni-Top jewelry collection, that I kind of went a little crazy.  I decided to make a whole jewelry set!  I covered the Magni-Tops, with fabric, paper, lace and added some Glam Rocks as well.  The ring and bracelet I made using Snap Daddies.  Now some lucky girl, perhaps my daughter, will be decked out in fabulous Imaginisce! Here is a look at what I did!  

Make sure you check the Imaginisce Blog today through Thursday to see what the whole design team did!

I am joining the Authentique Team!

I was so excited when Emily contacted me and asked me to join their Design Team.  I have always thought Authentique products were beautiful and unique.  I admired the gorgeous products and projects when I attended winter CHA and told myself that I had to get my hands on these paper collections.  Well, now I get to!  Starting in June you will get to see what I create using Authentique's beautiful collections.  

Authentique added two other talented ladies to the mix as well!  Shellye McDaniele and Angie Blom.  Click on their names to see their blogs!  Also go check out the Authentique Blog to see the whole announcement!

B's week on GCD Studios...who doesn't love birds?

I am up on the GCD Studios blog today with this project a featuring the Country Charm Collection!  All this week the design team will have projects to share with you starting with the letter B!


Yep...that is how we are when the King sisters get together. We chirp and chatter. It is true what they say...Birds of a feather stick together. So, lets talk about birds. They are social, beautiful and graceful...hmmm this describes the Kings sisters to a T!

To create this layout, I used the Country Charm Collection. I cut the title, clouds, birds, borders and banner out by using my Silhouette and the Picnic Basket, Weekend Fun, Sweet Floral and Country Bloom papers. 

Photobucket Photobucket 
I love to fussy cut so I used the Strawberry Jam papers and cut out the cute little blossoms and strawberries and adhered them around my layout using foam adhesive. 


I love, love, love birds and they are a huge trend in scrapbooking right now and the Country Charm Collection was perfect for this layout of me and my fine feathered friends.

Supplies: Country Charm Collection, Farm Field Stripe (1506), Weekend Fun (1515), Sweet Floral (1512), Tiny Floral Border (1513), Country Bloom (1505), Picnic Basket (1509), Strawberry Jam (1510), Floral Field (1507). Other Supplies: Silhouette and Foam Adhesive (American Crafts)
